Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed. If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage
to read more about 419 fraud.

Business letter from Mrs. Angela Oaks
It is with deepest sense of pain, anger and sadness that I write you this urgent and confidential business letter. The situation in Zimbabwe is getting out of hand that the whole world should come together and flush out Robert Mugabe from office. Whiite farmers are now running out from the country which they were born because of this tyranic beast Mugabe.
I am Mrs. Angela Oaks, wife of Late Mr. Tony Oaks who was a treasure of the farmers corperative union of Zimbabwe.(CFU) . I would like
you to consider this offer as not just a business offer but also a request for a humanitarian assistance. One that will be greatly rewarded.
The farmers corperative union of Zimbabwe was founded by my late husband and Mr. Cullin Cloete who is currently the president of the organization.
My late husband was also the treasurer of the organization and he was in charge of the company's finances.My late husband passed away after a gun shot by Zimbabwen
veterans loyal to the government Robert Mugabe . For further information regarding his death please go through the website: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/772524.stm
During the period late husband held office as the treasure of the
farmers corperative union, the company registered a business account in his name
with VEF Bank ( an offshore bank in Riga Latvia (in the Baltic states)) All moneytary contributions from members of the farmers including major shares from founding members of the organization
union and interests were secured in the offshore account with VEF Bank.
Whe my late husband passed away all contributions of the members of the corperative union were paid back to them and the major share holders received their various contributions. On behalf of my late husband and as his next-of-kin I was paid the sum of USD8Million and because of the crisis situation in Zimbabwe, I hid this fund in a security company in a country where I am currently hiding after my husband was shot and my life threatened.
My reasons for contacting you is that I am tired of seeking asylum and now I want to relocate to your country and invest hence I need your assistance to come and help me claim the funds from the security company since by law, I am restricted to transact any business here. This business is risk free and I am ready to pay you 40% of the total money for your assistance.
I have contacted a lawyer to help me and he is expecting my business partenr from overseas to contact him so please contact my lawyer on the email address email@example.com
Please do not contact me because I am undergoing a medical treaent and will not check my email so contact my lawyer Mr. Mike Adams immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org
